Writer's Project: Go! [Official Discussion]

Postby Chuey » Thu Nov 12, 2009 6:15 pm

Hey everyone, thank you for showing interest in the contest. The basic goal is to write a sixteen chapter story, one chapter per five days. This will stretch out, won’t it!? Your story may be about ANYTHING, as long as it is appropriate and everything like that. Once you finish, your story will be published on the blog, each chapter at a time. This means it won’t be on the forum and that posting on the blog posts with the chapters are encouraged.

Alright, begin! Your first chapter is due on the 17th. Considering how tiring this may become, try to send it in once you’re fully done. Everyone have fun! There will be some little prize at the end of this.

This thread is encouraged for spoilers, discussion of the contest, and so forth.

I have a problem with the 16 Chapter thing. I know this is supposed to be a short story and all, but I think we should choose how many Chapters there are :< I don't know how many I need now, but I can tell you it's more then 16 Chapters.

The limit will stay in place, however, you are allowed to keep going and such afterward. The chapter will just seem very cliff-hangy as it isn't the last chapter.

Still sad I got distracted from Nanowrimo, so I'll probably work on something for this. NS:)

I've been asked a very important question privately.

The entire process at this moment
•Create your first chapter.
•Privately message 'Chuey' your writing piece.
•When accepted, which should be right away (I'll point out any major errors I see), it will be posted on the blog by me. You will be notified about the posting.

If it dramatically wanted, we can do forum posts too, though that takes away from the blog itself and the attempt to bring meaning back to it.

OH CRAP.

Damn. Why did I decide to take a break from internets NOW, of all times?

*mad typing*

Edit: I think I might have to drop out. I only have until tonight to finish chapter 1, and I can't for the life of me remember what my story idea was.

Chuey might be able to give you an extension, seeing as you didn't know about it until now.

The deadline was up as of last evening, and I only have one submission... anyone else plan on attempting to enter? Because I can specialize and make the single story a full blog project with them...

Alright, well, setting a "be due" date usually helps people focus as no restriction allows people to slack off. It's an EVERYDAY world sort of thing with writing. Happy to wait, but once this starts to die to due to lack of attention... <_<
